Fair Play house description

Relax in our 4200 square foot, 2003 Mountain House -style waterfront home right on tranquil Lake Hartwell. Nestled on one full acre of woods and rolling lawns, this home feels totally secluded yet is a simple drive from Atlanta, Charlotte, or Greenville. The house is designed by a Colorado Mountain House architect and provides the true away-from-the-city feel. Aside from the standard new home features, the house offers huge windows and decks overlooking the back yard & lake, a private covered boat dock, an 8-person hot tub, a pool table and an oversize master bedroom suite taking up the entire 3rd level of the house.

This three story home has a combination of hardwood floors and carpet, rich wood ceilings and interior finish (like a hunting lodge), comfortable furniture (and rocking chairs), a modern, spacious kitchen with island, and three stone fire places. Each level has a full bathroom, and a TV and DVD player equipped with DirecTV. The main level houses two bedrooms, each with queen beds, the main living room area overlooking the lake through a wall of windows, the kitchen and dining room. The first floor (basement) has two bedrooms (one with a queen bed and one for the kids with two twin bunk beds), a large bathroom, sleeper couch and plenty of room for playing games or lounging. A large Plasma HDTV overlooks a full size billiards table and premium card table and leather chairs, surrounded by a stone fireplace on one side and a wall of French doors opening to the lower deck and the back yard. The third floor houses a large master bedroom/bathroom suite, sitting area, small office area and stone fireplace all overlooking the large façade of windows.

A quick walk down hill through the back yard and using newly built wooden steps, you will find a private covered dock, replete with a boat lift, running water and electricity. You'll enjoy spending the entire day on and around the dock and swimming in this quiet cove away from the wind, waves and boat traffic. Note that the last portion of the walk to the dock can be steep and requires caution, particularly if the water level if low!

The House is less about 90-minutes north of downtown Atlanta, and only 45 minutes from Greenville, SC making this an easy weekend or full-week getaway. For groceries and standard city amenities, Anderson, SC is just 20 minutes north of the house near Clemson University.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About the owner: I would say I'm somewhat of a non-conformist... I've worked hard in my life, but I'm now focusing on creating memorable experiences with friends and family that I can ultimately share with my Grand Kids! As such, I travel and recreate a lot and have gotten a serious head start on my 'bucket list'. My main hobbies include travel, health /fitness, kite surfing, cooking and reading.

              Why the Owner Chose Fair Play:
              Only 90-minutes north of my home in Atlanta, I can easily and spontaneously access the lake house.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The home offers the following main benefits: --while only 2 miles from the highway, the house is very secluded, peaceful and quiet --the style and architecture are very soothing and appropriate for the wooded lakefront setting --true relaxation whether boating, sitting in the hot tub, in a rocking chair or in front of the fire --quality time with friends and family
